Google Ireland has announced it is partnering with Dublin Chamber on a series of training workshops for SMEs as part of its Grow with Google initiative. Kicking off on Thursday 17th September, the workshops, which are free to attend to Dublin Chamber members, will provide SMEs with practical training to help them grow and enhance their online presence.
Grow with Google brings free training to Small and Medium Enterprises to help them grow their business successfully online, and provides free resources and support to help them overcome the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.
As a long term supporter of Irish SMEs, Google wants to ensure Irish businesses can gain access to the digital skills training they need to help them navigate through these uncertain times and find future opportunities for growth.
Taking place over three months, a team of Google experts will deliver the workshops via YouTube, with the first live workshop focusing on how Google Trends can help businesses gain a better understanding of their consumers and turn these insights into well-informed, actionable decisions.
A live Q&A will conclude each of the webinars and businesses are encouraged to participate and take advantage of the expert speakers’ knowledge and insights.
Commenting on the partnership, Mary Rose Burke, CEO of Dublin Chamber said, “We are delighted to announce this partnership between Google and Dublin Chamber. From listening to our members, we know that many businesses in Dublin are looking to enhance their digital skills.
Through the Google training workshops, we hope to give our members the confidence to integrate and use digital skills effectively in the everyday running of their business and to ensure ongoing success as we face an unstable economic environment as a result of Covid-19.”
Commenting, Damian Lynch, Head of Google Customer Solutions Ireland, said, “By partnering with Dublin Chamber we hope to equip business people with the digital skills and expertise to drive business growth by increasing their presence online.
Google is committed to supporting Irish SMEs in their recovery from the impacts of COVID-19 and we hope that these workshops will supply Dublin Chamber members with life-long online skills that will help them overcome the current challenges they are facing and help to navigate their way through the digital transformation process.”
Grow with Google aims to help people and businesses acquire the skills needed to embrace the opportunities that technology presents in today’s working world. As part of this, Google has committed support for 60,000 Irish SMEs and to provide free training to 40,000 people in digital skills by the end of 2021.
